2 Timothy 2:1-7 - Exhortation To Be Strong In Grace

1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong through the grace which is by Jesus Christ. 2 And the things which thou hast heard from me before many witnesses, these commit to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.

3 Thou therefore endure affliction, is a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No man that warreth intangleth himself in the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath inlisted him. 5 And if a man strive, he is not crowned, unless he strive lawfully. 6 The husbandman, that laboureth first, must be partaker of the fruits. 7 Consider what I say, and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
